Extract from Foreword by Walter Crane. Miss Muriel Moller is an accomplished carver in wood, who has also had extensive experience in teaching the craft. In drawing these sheets of patterns she has had in view the need of a clearly defined outline of design for tracing on to the wood for the carver. A useful feature is the sheet of the elevations to scale of executed furniture designs which accompany the patterns and indicate the position and relation of the carved work in use.
